Note 3/1/2020

NEW Version 2 Carbon Fiber Pipes (Applies to all new orders fulfilled after 3/1/2020). We've invested, upgraded and improved on our manufacturing processes for creating these carbon fiber pipes. The result? Significant improvements and the result is a high quality and premium carbon fiber piece. By investing and upgrading the technology regarding how our pipes are cured, we're ultimately able to eliminate the use of bagging material during manufacturing.
 
Bagging material has its disadvantages. Bagging material does not produce smooth and consistent surfaces while being bent in different directions, thus causing uneven and unwanted high and low spots within the resin of our version 1 pipe. This resulted in inconsistencies within the insides of the pipe, air pockets, poor/uneven lamination and unsurprisingly, low structural rigidity.

With that being said, we decided to do things better. We've invested in a few additional molds to help create rubber sacrificial cores that are the same shape and bends of our pipe which we now use during production. By placing a rubber inflatable core (The core is the same shape as our CF pipes) inside our pipes, we can ensure that all inside area surfaces of our pipe is compressed with consistent and high pressure during curing. 

The results are consistent lamination throughout the whole pipe, reduced air pockets, improved structural rigidity and super smooth/consistent inside surfaces (No more high and low spots), all qualities of a high end and well made premium carbon fiber part. 

To further improve on our pipes
, we have added reinforcements to the blow off valve port, as well as reinforcing the end connections of the CF pipe with more layers for increased rigidity. The result? A totally different level and quality pipe dubbed Version 2. 

Purpose

Ever wondered why most turbocharged cars would pull hardest on the first pull of the drive and quickly fall flat on its face afterwards after the 3rd pull? With more heat in the intercooler system, the less power an engine can crank out as it has to keep everything from knocking and detonating. With our Carbon Fiber Intercooler pipes and feedback from our users, we are currently seeing an average of 20-30F maximum increase over ambient, on the race track or on the streets with or without traffic!

A Game Changer
Intake Air Temperatures with Stainless steel/Aluminum pipes can exceed 130-165F after 3 to 6 pulls on an upgraded side mounted intercooler setup. 165F is ridiculous considering modern high performance cars are only about 10-30F above ambient.
 
How is this possible? Well, Carbon Fiber material IS A GREAT INSULATOR. With 10 to 40 times lower heat thermal transfer conductivity values than Aluminum and Stainless steel respectively, your intake charge temperatures will be significantly lower
  • Exhaust manifold temperatures can reach up to 1200F with your valve cover temperature itself hovering around 185-260F+. Imagine how hot that metal pipe must be after driving for a while. 
    • By physics and the laws of thermodynamics, metal pipe would absorb outside radiated heat and radiate it within the pipe since air charge temps are cooler inside the pipe than the radiated heat generated by exhaust manifold (By law, Hot goes to cold until equilibrium temperatures).

    With that knowledge in mind, Its simply just not an efficient and smart way of doing things. 

    Ever wondered why some established companies such as HybridRacing for Hondas make their Cold Air intake kits out of mostly silicone (Its a great insulator).

    Ever wondered why Koenigsegg uses Carbon Fiber intake manifolds and intercooler pipes on their most exotic and highest performing cars? 

    Ever wondered why
     engineering marvel and high performing Buggatti Chiron, a car that Shattered land speed record with 305 Miles Per Hour, a 3 Million Dollar+ Supercar chooses to use carbon fiber for their intercooler pipes and intake manifolds? 

    Considering their 
    vast budget available and being owned by Volkswagon (One of the biggest car groups around), out of all the materials available at their disposal and under a strict "motor/car cannot fail during extreme fully continuous use" mindset, they chose to design their pipes out of Carbon Fiber. Not Plastic, Not Rubber, Not silicone, but Carbon Fiber.

    Features and advantages

    Carbon Fiber Intercooler Pipe Advantages 

    • Lowers Intake Temperatures - Excellent insulator - Resists heat from entering the piping/intercooler system (See reasons above)
      • Higher intercooler efficiency
      • Pipes stay warm to the touch - Prevents pipes from becoming hot thus causing "heatsoak" and warming up the air inside the pipes.
      • More horsepower throughout your whole drive.
    • Lightweight
      • The GEN2/3/5 Pipes (Both cold and hot pipes w/o BOV flange combined) weigh as much as a medium sized water bottle at 1.1 pounds! Stainless Steel pipes would weigh 7+. 
    • Rolled bead design on pipe connection helps prevent blowing off couplers
    • Reinforced End Sections - For Version 2 (2020+) To further improve on our pipes, the ends of the pipes have extra carbon layers for improved structural rigidity. 
    • Exotic, modern and great to look at (Pair it up with some of our other CF engine bay offerings!)
    • Blow off valve support
      • No BOV 
      • Stock BOV (Currently integrated into the pipe)
      • Greddy, HKS or Tial BOV Port (Interchangeable with our universal aftermarket BOV port)
    • Smooth Insides - For our new updated Version 2 pipes, due to new  upgrade in manufacturing processes, the insides of these pipes are now super smooth. 
    • Made from high quality PrePreg Carbon Fiber, molded and formed at 300F and oven cured at 266F. 
    • Dyno tested 400WHP on a GTX3076 at 19PSI as well as a CT15B at 19PSI @ 360WHP
    • Track tested CT15B @ 18PSI at 350WHP, 22-30 degrees above ambient intake air temperatures

    Intercooler Kit advantages
